UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored. At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.
We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations. Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.
It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.
As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

So, I’m new to Npora. I bought a 97 se with no rust, death wobble and falling apart steering rack bushings someone’s “mechanic friend” put 3 zip ties around ?drove it 3 hrs home going 35 and got straight to putting poly 4link/steering rack bushings in, fixed everything drives like a new truck now. built a 4x4 square tube 1/4” bumper to get trees out of my way. Magnetic oil drain plug , oil filter and 15w30. Added a trans cooler in-line with the radiator one for a 26,000lb motor home. A missing link made from 1/8” wall tube(probably way overkill but that’s what I had laying around). cabelas roof rack and custom cross bars to make it sit low. Rear sway bar delete. Front grill brush guard. pacer 2 1/2” flares. Next plans are a 2” spring lift with 13” limiting straps to fix strut top out, and 100 to 106mm hubcentric rings (dosent shake or anything but I’ve had terrible shake on some drift cars so I’m not taking chances) Lmk what you think, I’ll post pictures as soon as i figure out how it just says you are allowed 153.6kb limit so I guess I have to compress the pictures?
